This peel is made using Select Pine and Walnut. I decided to make a few more peels just to have for gift giving.
I make my peels really thin and light weight and I wasn’t sure if pine would hold up a heavy pizza so I did a test after making this pine peel. I used a 4 pound bag of sugar on the peel to see how much it would flex. Well as you can see in the photo it didn’t flex at all. The peel is only 1/4” thick and is very strong. The Walnut handle halves are glued on using Titebond III forming a 1 1/4” X 7/8’ handle.
The finish is Food grade Mineral Oil and Bees Wax.

Thanks for looking in! All comments welcome!

Good thinking Tony. The select pine will look a lot better and is a lot sturdier. Also a great idea to have a few on hand for the holidays. There’s nothing like a whole made pizza.

Thanks Joe! My wife thinks this design is cool also! She like the fact that it’s really light in weight.

Thanks Diggerjacks, I think making the handle this way gives the peel a little more character.

Thanks Dave! I think I’m going to stay with this design. It seems to be a hit around here!

Lee! You got me thinking! Meat lovers Pizza and a few brewskies! Yummy! Thanks Lee time to go get some ingredients!

Thanks Brian! I had my doubts about using Pine but it worked perfectly!

Thanks ahavenz11 We do love wood around here don’t we! LOL! Oh! And welcome to Lumberjocks!

mariva, I’m Sicilian, I see you are in Italy… I bet you make some really good pizza there in Italy!

Thanks Dave! I’m glad this pine wood worked out. I needed to use up some cut off’s and this was a perfect project for this Pine wood. I didn’t think it would be strong but it is and I like the look of it much better than the walnut peel in my last post.

Another fine looking peel, Tony—you’re really getting the hang of these things!

So I guess the pizza party’s at your house!

Thanks Dean!
I’ve got 3 more to make and then I’ll take a good long break!

I would love it if all of us could get together and enjoy each others company, eating pizza, drinking some good booze and maybe some fine wine and a few beers! That sounds so good but one or two brews for me and I’m done! I barely qualify as a drinker of spirits!
Thanks for the compliments Buddy!

Done it again Tony,
That is really beautiful, I love the colour contrast. Sure is strong hey!!!!!
Well done mate.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

It looks sturdy and in a pinch might be a burglar deturant? I used to make a 5 pond pizza. LOL Now it’s Sam’s 3 meat. Merry Christmas. You’re ahead of the gift giving game. As Stumpy says “Lean back and have a cool one, you deserve it my friend.

Thanks Bob, I was hunting in my wife’s pantry for a 5 lb bag of sugar but all she had was a 4 lb’er…Glad that ole peel past the test! LOL! I had to take that camera shot quickly because Carols arm was giving way under all that stress! :-(

Thnaks Tom, I always thought sugar came in 5 lb bags!! I felt cheated when I saw it was only 4 lb’s. We’ll I’m sure this peel would hold up your 5 ponder (I would love to see that beauty). 4 lb’s didn’t even budge this peel so that means I could give a burglar a pretty good whack and still serve a nice thick pizza with it. LOL!

PS. Merry Christmas!

Looks like it’s also good for scraping the back window of your truck. :-)
